Academic Appointments

Professor of Anthropology

In the broadest sense, I am interested in understanding the politics of environmental change and conservation.  My work contributes to theoretical discussions in political ecology, environmental anthropology, as well as post-humanist philosophy.  I have conducted ethnographic research in the Florida Everglades, with urban communities in the United States, and currently, I am working on a long-term project in Tierra del Fuego, Chile.  My research in Tierra del Fuego explores the ways introduced species are remaking the landscape and the ethics of living and dying in a changing world.
